US welcomes indictment of four JuD leaders

ISLAMABAD: The US State Department has welcomed the indictment of four leaders of the Jamaatud Dawa (JuD), a banned outfit, on charges of terror financing.

On Tuesday, an anti-terrorism court in Lahore had indicted Hafiz Abdul Rehman Makki and three other leaders of JuD. Makki and other suspects had pleaded not guilty and decided to face the trial.

“Welcome Pakistan’s indictment on June 9 of 4 leaders from Jamaat ud Dawa, a front organization of the LeT terrorist group,” the US Department for South and Central Asian Affairs said in a tweet from its official handle.

The tweet went on to say that the verdict is a positive step towards meeting international obligations to counter terrorist financing and making the country free of terrorist outfits “in line with Prime Minister Imran Khan’s vision”.
